The leaves are all down but I found a use for our leaf blower. Cropped and converted to black and white along with minor changes to contrast and brightness in Photoshop Elements.

A breezy and cozy shot with great hair movement and hands in sich a wonderful position to impart the sensation of a cool breeze. Bumping up.

I love the emotion that you caught on this one. She looks so heart broken! I've added this one to my favorites. :)

'I'm so cold... I would really like to go somewhere warm and release myself to my grief but just can't make myself leave just yet...'
Very emotive shot. Your choice of B/W treatment makes this pop!

This is emotional, meets the challenge, has great composition and focus (with the exception of the over abundance of hair covering the face.) The womans posture speaks volumes. Bumping up to 9.
